Me: Look what Chris sent me.

Nell: No more puppies.

Me: It’s a photo of Dave and Harriet and all their siblings waiting to see us five years ago.

Nell: By us you don’t mean me. I wasn’t included.

Me: We couldn’t take you, Nell. The puppies were too small.

Nell: I’m their aunt.

Me: Anyway, look at Dave and Harriet sitting together. Even then they were inseparable. Isn’t that adorable?

Nell: Yes, and rather apt considering what happened yesterday at Sunday Songs.

Me: I know. When Jim knelt down on bended paw we all held our breath.

Nell: I knew it was coming, of course. Jim asked me for my blessing the day before.

Me: You never said.

Nell: It was not my news to share.

Me: Harriet shouted ‘Yes’ to the world. She was so happy.

Nell: Jim said he’d been planning to ask her when she lost her voice and he didn’t think the time was right.

Me: True.

Nell: So he waited until she got it back and he and Rita created a musical proposal.

Me: The llamas certainly threw themselves into it.

Nell: Literally. What have cartwheels got to do with a proposal?

Me: Cartwheels mean happiness to llamas.

Nell: I suppose so.

Me: Both puppies are engaged. This is so exciting.

Nell: It is.

Me: Do you think they will have a double wedding?

Nell: It is a distinct possibility but we need to let them decide.

Me: We could suggest it to them?

Nell: The Cat already has.

Me: And?

Nell: And never you mind and wait and see.

Me: I hate waiting.

Nell: Let’s just enjoy the fact that Dave and Harriet have both found the love of their lives. It is what I’ve always wanted for them.

Me: You’re right. Sorry.
